Melbourne, Mar.4 : Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has said that he has had one too many in terms of drinks, but has never smoked dope.
According to news.co..au, Rudd has a squeaky clean public image, tarnished only by his boozy visit to a New York strip club in 2003, for which he has expressed regret.
Today, he was asked if he had smoked marijuana, after Treasurer Wayne Swan and Queensland Labor Premier Anna Bligh admitted to having smoked cannabis.
"I hate to give you the absolutely boring answer I'm at, but no," Rudd told the Seven Network.
"If you want to go through the other cardinal sins, then I don't think it would be a universal negative answer on those, but on smoking dope - no."
Last August, it was revealed Rudd went to Scores Night Club in New York while on a taxpayer-funded trip to the United States in 2003.
Rudd, who was in New York to represent Australia at the United Nations, has said he was too drunk to remember details and he regretted the incident.
